Thekatte: Hunsemakki Chandrasekhar Nayak, has been making Lord Ganesh idols in Kundapura taluk using natural ingredients and colours for the past 25 years.

This year he has made a novel Ganapati idol using an innovative technique based on onion skins and clay creating the most lightweight idols presently available.

The idols weighing about 2.5 kilograms are so safe that they can be immersed even in drinking water or house wells.

With the help of his wife and children, he has been able to make 79 of such idols.

His idols have been bought by devotees as far as Mangaluru, Udupi, Kundapura, Byndoor, Katapadi and many other places across the coastal Karnataka.
